"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Albert Hofmann (1906-2008) R.I.P.

Just read on the great musicneverstopped blog, that ALBERT HOFMANN, the "father" of the mind-altering "psychedelic" drug LSD, has died on April 29th, age 102.
Hofmann first synthesized LSD-25 in 1938 for the Sandoz Laboratories, Swizerland, but it was set aside until April 1943. While re-synthesizing the drug, Hofmann accidentally absorbed a small quantity through his fingertips and discovered its powerful effects while riding his bicycle home on the first acid trip in man's history. A series of self-conducted experiments followed.
Read more about Hoffmann's life and his experiments with mind-altering drugs in his book "LSD: My Problem Child".
Have a look at some blotterart here.

I suddenly have an urge to dose. That sheet looks so yummy. Oh boy. There's nothing like an acid trip but those days are behind me..... probably.
